James Webb Space Telescope: Keeping Things Cold

In this activity children learn about how the James Webb Space Telescope is designed to keep itself cold. They find out about the sunshield and how it works then explore how they can keep cold things cold, when they are exposed to heat; investigating the best material and number of layers...

James Webb Space Telescope: Investigating How Freezing Affects Materials

In this resource children investigate how the properties of different materials change when they are frozen. The two activities are based on a challenge scientists and engineers had when designing the James Webb Space Telescope: that the space facing side of the telescope needed to...

Handy Hydro: Ultimate STEM Challenge

This is Challenge Two of the 2017-18 BP Ultimate Stem Challenge. The challenge is to design a simple system to generate electricity from moving water. Students are to plan and carry out an investigation to measure how much electrical...

Beat the Flood STEM challenge

In this resource, suitable for Key Stage Two to Three (age 7-14), students use their STEM skills to help them design and build a model of a flood- proof house. Activities to help them with their design include testing materials (for strength and absorbency) and structures. Set on a fictitious island coping with the...
